This ain’t your dad’s snowspeeder

Yet more evolved Star Wars goodness emerging from the current From Bricks To Bothans contest. I love this next-gen snowspeeder from Don Wilson. He’s taken a classic craft from the original trilogy and created his own version of how it might look 30 years later.

The model has a lovely shape, still evoking the classic snowspeeder lines, but somehow managing to look all-new at the same time. There’s some great color blocking and sticker use, and the integration of the cannons into the hull is fantastic. I’d have blogged this even if it hadn’t have been Star Wars-related, but such a classy reinvention of an old favorite just makes it all the better.
